Love this <3
I said it and I mean it.
I need to make one of these for my classroom.
81 days until pitcher and catchers report to spring training.
Ah, the holidays…
My students keep in-class journals. This consists of a composition notebook that does not leave the classroom. When I first started this, years ago, there was no pattern for when the journals would be graded. This was difficult for everyone.
To help myself, and the students, I created this system. I used a piece of poster-board onto which I placed 10 paperclips. I went to the hardware store and picked up a few paint samples which I laminated. Every time my students have a new assignment I put up a new card on the journal board. This has helped in many ways:
- They know what to name their entries.
- They can look to see if they missed a journal entry when they are not in class.
- They know when they are getting close to journal collecting time (sometimes they need to go back and finish sections before they can turn it in).
- I am forced to grade the journals after ten enteries.
After I have graded the journals I take down the cards, erase them, and the systems starts all over again. It works for us.

My cat does this a lot while I’m reading. Herbie just loves attention and petting.
Love this. I miss my cat <3
